Open Thread

by Mary

Scott Horton recently wrote about the smackdown Obama gave Deadeye Dick on last Sunday's 60 Minutes. He linked a fascinating discussion between Rachel Maddow and Jonathan Turley where Turley explains why this is very dangerous territory for Obama. Namely the problem is that the evidence is becoming so clear Cheney is guilty of war-crimes that Obama runs the risk of not taking his responsibilities to the rule of law seriously by ignoring this blatant lawlessness. And of course, Dickie continues to dare Obama to do something. It's an interesting and yet important psychological game being played out right now.
